Apple accounts for 59% of the tablets app processor in the first quarter

For the fifth consecutive quarter, the tablet applications processor (AP) market posted shipment and revenue growth, according to Strategy Analytics. And Apple accounted for 59% of AP revenue in quarter one thanks to the iPad, notes the research group.

The tablet AP market grew 33% to US$761 million in the timeframe. Apple’s 59% revenue share was followed by 14% for Intel and 10% for Qualcomm.

“Strategy Analytics estimates that Apple increased its tablet AP revenue share to 59% in quarter one of 2021 – the company’s highest share in the past nine years,” says Sravan Kundojjala, author of the report. “Apple’s tablet AP revenue grew 60% year-on-year in Q1 2021, driven by new 5 nm-based A14 Bionic and Apple Silicon M1. The pandemic-driven demand also helped.”
